After winning the T20I series 2-1, Australia will now shift their focus on the 5-match ODI series. The first match will be played at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday, June 14. The same venue will host the second ODI on June 16 before the action shift to Colombo for the remaining three ODIs on June 19, 21 and 24.
Australia are surely going to take these matches seriously as the 50-over World Cup will be held under similar conditions in India in 2023. Sri Lanka will also look to bounce back after below-par performances in the T20Is. Overall, Australia and Sri Lanka have played a total of 97 ODIs against each other. While Australia have emerged victorious on 61 occasions, Sri Lanka have won 32 times. Also, Australia have won four out of their last five matches against Sri Lanka. The four wins have been consecutive. Australia haven't lost an ODI match against Sri Lanka since August 2016.
As we gear up for the first ODI, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the SL vs AUS 1st ODI head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the SL vs AUS head-to-head contest.
The ODI opening pair of David Warner and Aaron Finch is one of the best in the world. They hold the record for the 16th highest partnership by an opening pair. In a January 2020 match against India at the Wankhede Stadium in India, the duo had partnered for 258 unbeaten runs. They are also the eight most successful opening pairs in the history of the game. The duo has scored 3638 runs at an average of 52.72. Finch has a strike rate of 88.21 in the format, whereas boasts of a strike rate of 95.53. The two finished as the top two run-getters in the recently-concluded T20I series as well. Warner scored 130 runs at an average of 65 and strike rate of 149.42, while Finch amassed 114 runs at an average of 57 and strike rate of 156.16. In the presence of Warner and Finch scoring 49.5 overs will not at all be a difficult task.
The last time Australia and Sri Lanka played against each other, they scored 53/0 in the first 10 overs. In the match prior to that, Australia have scored 31/3, 65/1 and 72/0 in the first 10 overs of their last three ODIs. The not so lethal Sri Lankan bowling line-up will further help Australia who are well accustomed to the conditions by now. Also, Sri Lanka have won both their ODI matches at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. They scored 58 runs in the first 10 overs when they last played in Pallekele. Going by the current form of Australia batters and the team's record at the ground, Australia should easily score over 49.5 runs in the first 10 overs.
If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the odds of 1.85 and place your bet on Australia to score over 49.5 runs in the first ten overs from the SL vs AUS head-to-head encounter.
Aaron Finch and Marcus Stoinis are my top two player betting tips for the SL vs AUS 3rd T20I. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
Australia captain Aaron Finch was the second highest run-scorer after David Warner in the recently-concluded T20I series against Sri Lanka. From the three matches, Finch accumulated 114 runs at an average of 57 and strike rate of 156.16. The 35-year-old scored 61*, 24 and 29 in the three outings.
In his last six ODIs, Finch has scored of 0, 0, 23, 75, 60 and 114. Finch has played nine ODI matches against Sri Lanka and scored 342 runs at an average of 42.75. He has one hundred against Sri Lanka. The Victoria-born scored 153 runs in his last outing against Sri Lanka at the Oval in England. He played a match in Pallekele in 2016 but did not get a chance to bat. But we are very certain that Finch, who has played 135 ODIs and scored 5255 runs at an average of 41.05, will score over 29.5 runs in the first SL vs AUS ODI on Tuesday.
If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and pick the odds of 1.87 for Aaron Finch to score over 29.5 runs from the SL vs AUS head-to-head encounter.
Marcus Stoinis blasted 38 runs off 23 balls in the last T20I match against Sri Lanka in Pallekele. The team lost the match but he looked in good touch in his second outing of the tour. Australia won the match by 10 wickets in the first Test as the others in the team did not get the chance to showcase their skills. But with two matches under his belt in Sri Lanka, Stoinis will look to deliver with the bat in the 50-over matches which might give him the opportunity to play more balls than he gets in the T20Is.
The 32-year-old has played a total of 48 ODI matches and scored 1200 runs at an average of 31.57. Stoinis, who usually bats at the number four or number five position in the last few months, has scored 19, 49 and 26 runs in his last three ODI outings. The Perth-born has never played an ODI match against Sri Lanka. He was recently part of the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the IPL 2022 where he scored 156 runs in 11 matches at an average of 19.50. However, with the format changing, Stoinis will get much more time to settle in before playing his shots. Scoring 21.5 runs should not be difficult for Marcus Stoinis.
If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and pick the odds of 1.87 for Marcus Stoinis to score over 21.5 runs from the SL vs AUS head-to-head encounter.
